Parent and Carer Survey Feedback

Parent and Carer Survey – Summer 2022

Our Summer 2022 Parent and Carer Survey asked our parents and carers for comments about our school, and this is what they said...

  • I have had both of my children attend BFIS and I do not believe there is a better school out there. The warmth towards the children, parents and carers makes you feel as though you belong to the BFIS family.

  • Experiences and activities that you provide the children are excellent! Memorable and enjoyable. Reading – links to phonics sounds/children regularly read with an adult. Engaging topics which is then brought home! My child wants to learn and find out more facts when he can then take to school.

  • Barnes Farm creates a contusive environment for learning, discipline and most importantly challenging pupils and having the attitude of everybody is different and unique.

  • Great learning opportunities – a varied curriculum. The school is good at community information to us. Encouraging environmentally friendly ways to get to schools and Challenging/extending children’s learning when needed.

  • Student welfare is high on the priority lists. Students are happy and receive an active and engaging curriculum.

  • You have a strong ethos that our children understand (owl code) and the staff are easy to approach.

  • The reason why Barnes Farm stands out against other schools is the focus on emotional; well-being and learning in non-conventional ways. For example, the Zones of Regulation, Forest School and the Mantle of the Expert. Also, all of the staff at Barnes Farm individually care about the children.

  • A varied way of teaching the curriculum,. The focus on the children’s wellbeing as well as the academic side of school. Great teachers. Navigated the challenges of COVID really well.

  • The friendliness of the teaching staff and Head Teacher/. The additional experiences such as school trips, little riders, forest schools, owl visit. The SEN support and daily interventions that go over and above anything I have experienced from other schools. The PSHE programme which is fantastic and embedded within the school culture.

  • The level of care and attention towards the children is excellent.

  • Our child loves our school BFIS. Safety, fun and teaching is excellent. Very happy with selection of school trips, our son very much enjoyed. Forest Schools – fresh air is fun!

  •  A big plus is also EBNO Club – FANTASTIC Staff and fun for kids. Thanks a lot.

  • Teachers are amazing and always so supportive and approachable. Events organized have been lovely.

  • My daughter’s words: ‘I love it’. Thank you for a fantastic three years. COVID didn’t prevent your teaching, and you even shone through the difficulty.
